Two undercover FBI agents can hide who they are from everyone but each other in the latest novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Suddenly One Summer .

After spending six years in Los Angeles-and the last six months wondering how her marriage fell apart-FBI Special Agent Jessica Harlow is looking for a fresh start. When she finds out that the Chicago field office has an opening for an undercover agent, returning to her hometown seems like the perfect answer. But her new partner, John Shepherd, is someone she never expected to see again. Six years ago, the cocky Army Ranger was her top competition at the FBI Academy, and the one man who got under her skin like no other.

Just one assignment away from joining the FBI's elite Hostage Rescue Team, John isn't going to let anything throw him off his game-not even the self-assured woman who once showed him up at Quantico. He'll work with Jessica to take down a corrupt Florida politician, even if pretending to be business partners staying at a beachfront resort means getting closer than they'd expected. For two experienced agents, it should be a simple enough assignment, but the heat behind their nonstop sparring threatens to make the job a whole lot more complicated . . .

Too much boring filler details; not enough plot, character development, or fun. I gave up half way thru this one.

Julie James lost her fabulous editor, Wendy McCurdy. The Thing About Love isn't as good as Ms. James' earlier books. It's a good beach read, but it lacks the sass and sizzle of her earlier books which were edited by Ms. McCurdy.

I've read all of them except for her first: Just the Sexiest Man Alive. My favorite is A Lot Like Love which the library sadly doesn't have in paperback. A close runner-up is Practice Makes Perfect.

It's been a fun beach-book-binge.
